in regards to fusions.

i love sneakers. duh. everyone does. well, except DNTZ. he only fucks with chuck taylors and doc martins. that being said, i also hate on alot of shoes in ways that people who aren't sneaker heads wouldn't really understand. so let's speak on the air jordan-air force one hybrids that have been making me sick for a few years now. they are ugly. they look clunky. they just suck. it always amazed me that they could take a super ill, classic, historic shoe like say... the jordan 6, and turn it into something absolutely repulsive like this.

see what i'm talking about??

so imagine my surprise when a few months back, jordan and nike decided to start fusing classic jordan designs with the sacred air max line. and guess what? this time, they got it right. peep the jordan 11/ airmax1 blend..


dope, right? yeah, but not quite postworthy. well today, i stumbled upon these jordan 12/air max 97 fusions


bravo, jordan brand. bravo.

so anyway, there's that. but i also feel obligated to post a joint for you to listen to since you're here. so here's some black milk and friends.


sn - i'm working on getting an online radio show soon. pretty gassed about it. stay tuned. peace.

  2. The flight 9s were super Illy. Kind of a "can't find any 4's for less than 250$, so these will do" type of Kick. I dig em. What do u think of the air max/Jordan fusions in question here?

  4. although that silver shit looks pretty durable... Still, we'd have to be living in some kind of zombie apocalypse or something for me to put something like that on my feet, like it's either these things or I'm going barefoot through broken glass on some Bruce Willis Die-Hard bullshit. And I'd be dodging zombies, bitching about these ugly ass shoes.

  5. You're being blinded by your bias. The Jordans are WAY more clunky looking than the hybrids. I always thought they looked doofy. (c) Ghostface

  7. @HL-
    no.sign.
    the af1 fusions are the ugliest thing with a jumpman on them. one thing that sets the jordan brand apart is that the soles matter. they always manage to do something cool with the sole. EXCEPT - when they take OFF the sole, and attatch a plain, gross af1 sole. if your gonna replace a jordan sole -especially 11s (GOAT bottom of a shoe) or 12s you gotta do it with something equally dope - like an air max unit.

    tell me those air max hybrids aren't murdering the af1 hybrids in cold blood!
